  3. di naman pala masyado maganda mag jump sa crystal! im satisfied with my astra! almost same specs naman... kung ginawa nilang 1GB ram yan, ok pa siguro! tapos ang battery, 1700mAh maliit parin! tapos i dont really need HD screens or qHD man yan... kahit low res lng ang astra ko, di mo naman mapansin! kasing linaw ng galaxy s2 ang astra ko - which is a flagship phone! anyways, for those looking on crystal, tapos naghinayang sa pag bili ng astra, its not a big loss! yung specs, almost same lng! same 1ghz dual core, 512mb ram.. pinagkaiba nila 4.5 qHD (di mo naman siguro mapansin) and slightly bigger 1700mAh, im pretty satisfied of what can 1500mAh astra give me! mag hahanap nalng ako ng extra battery, pretty sure either samsung or nokia lng ang battery nito! :)
